This album is pretty cool. Thinking mostly about the vocals.
You might like Odd Future's Frank Ocean too
too. Drake's mixtape 'So Far Gone' has quite a similar disenchanted/soulful vibe.
I love The-Dream, for the record.
I'm not sure what I meant. Maybe the poo was too much. Anyway, all I was trying to say was that The Weeknd can fit into the centre of a ven diagram of Terius Nash (who I love) and James (meh) Blake.
crossover/gateway type group between r&b and indie. This is maybe the reason I dont *really* like them that much. I like some of the songs fine, but it all seems a bit forced to me. Expecially the swearing which never bothers me ever, but for some reason the way these guys employ it kind of grates, like its just too OTT or something.
I need to spend more time with it tho, admittedly.
The whole idea is brilliant. The beats for R & B actually sounding filthy and dirty as the lyrics is such a great idea - you don't know why someone hasn't done it before.
This mix is ace.
and I feel like I need a shower after listening to it. Which is a good thing obviously. Good shagging music.
